What Are You Up To?
Sundays in Lent
February 18 – March 25
If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.
- Mark 8:31-38
Lent is often known as the season of giving something up in order to make room for spiritual pursuits. Rather than just "giving up" in Lent, scripture asks us to consider what that Jesus is "up to" (and we should be up to, too). What are we up to that call us to be our best selves, both individually and as the church?

Parents and children are invited to be part of the Palm Sunday processional Sunday, March 25. Please gather in the back of the Sanctuary at 10:55 am to take part in the parade. Afterward, children 5 and under may stay in worship or be taken to childcare.
Join us March 30 at 7 pm in the WPC Sanctuary for Good Friday worship. The service will include scripture, music, and growing darkness in which to remember Christ’s crucifixion. Childcare is available.
Flowering the Cross - Easter Sunday
Throughout Lent, we have been weaving our prayers into a rough-hewn cross. On Easter Sunday, we will flower that same cross.
Flowering the cross is a beautiful way to symbolize the new life that emerges on Easter. Before you come to Easter worship, pick a fresh flower from our garden or purchase one at the grocery store. When you arrive, place your flower in the cross in the sanctuary. There will also be flowers available for you in case you are unable to bring one for yourself.
With your flowers, the symbol of death, darkness, and hopelessness will become a brilliant array of colors, light, and fragrance. Together, let’s transform the cross and help make this Easter a celebration of new life.

Children in Worship
Children are an important part of WPC and families are encouraged to bring children to worship. Worship bags are provided to keep young hands busy. Services include a special time for children, after which Kindergarten and younger may return to a classroom for playtime until worship has concluded.
While even our littlest ones are welcome in worship, childcare for infants - age 2 is offered from 9:30 am - 12:00 pm every Sunday.
We have a number of special worship services (Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Christmas Eve, etc.), throughout the year. Childcare is always available. Check our newsletter for times and more information.
